Cowardice And Dishonorable Conduct
The Propagandist's Israeli correspondent Jonathan Danilowitz goes berserk on Queers Against Israeli Apartheid in the Real Israel's Blog -- not to mention their cowardly enablers in Toronto:
QAIA – a gay group – totally ignores the homophobic Arab states and they are oblivious to the massacres presently going on by Arab governments against their own protesting citizens in Egypt, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Tunis, Libya, Syria, not to mention Turkey, North Korea, Uganda, Zimbabwe – the list is long. The racist anti-Semitism of the hate group is obvious, clear and defined.
The Toronto City Council, and especially the mayor, made it clear, and rightly so, that the Toronto Pride Parade would lose its funding from the city if the organizers allowed the hate group to fan the racist flames during the parade. All thinking people applauded the decision. Except that without the funding, the parade would not go on, and the Toronto City Council desperately wants the parade – it brings tourist, business & income to the city.
In an act of cowardly avarice (money-grubbing greed) the City Council of Toronto overturned their own decision, by deciding to sanitize the hate speech of QUIA by calling it “freedom of speech”. Wow.
